I wrote a terrible parody song to mark the occasion of Connor McDavid's blockbuster contract signing. Connor may be the only 20 year old capable of managing this amount of wealth, regardless, it's safe to say that a lot of 20 year olds might do some terrible things with this amount of dough.
The Friday Funzies Mega-Mix is played every Friday. I collect the sounds from the week that was. The listeners who called and the new stories that occurred are placed atop a music bed that fits the theme of the week. This week was an all Canadian mix. Everything involved in this Mega-Mix has a tie to Canada. I hope you enjoy and have a fantastic Canada Day long weekend.
Arizona Iced Tea is one of the only constants that a consumer can rely on in today's topsy-turvy world. Oil prices, bananas, sea-food, Taber corn, all rise and fall with the seasons and the economy. One of the only things that one can count on is the fact that if I saunter down the soda isle at my local food jobber, the Arizona Iced Tea will sit at the rock-steady price of 99 cents. The price sticker is built into the can. It's a beautiful thing. SO, When we heard from a listener that he stumbled across an Arizona Iced Tea display that had the disturbing price point of $1.29, we were obviously horrified. I've taken it upon myself to fight the good fight and create a boycott list for vendors and pop shoppes that egregiously take advantage of consumers that need their teal can fix. Please feel free to tweet at me @TheRealRyMy or contact the Better Business Bureau to report the offenders.
Jordan Eberle has been traded to the New York Islanders for Ryan Strome. I really like Eberle. Far be it from me to be critical of the Oiler brass who made the decision to trade the guy, though. The Chiarelli era management seems to know what they're doing, so, instead of debate the merit of what they've done, I'm choosing to take it as it is and simply reflect on Jordan Eberle's career as an Edmonton Oiler. I've dumped out a LOT of terrbile radio content that revolved around Ebs. There was of course the long running audio series, "Hall N' Ebs", then there was "Hunter N' Ebs", and of course allll of the god-awful parody songs. The one in particular that i'm sharing seems to sum up Eberle's Oiler run the best. It's titled "H.O.P.E." and as of today, "H.O.P.E." has officially died.
McCord and I talked about items from your bachelor days, that you somehow managed to keep even though your significant other hates them. McCord just bought a piece of street art that features a giant robot stalking a VW Jetta through a prairie landscape. We received a call from one gentleman who took this to the next level. He bought a piece of taxidermy from a garage sale, and it's a truly terrifying piece.
McCord came across an article online this week that stated that we, as a species, shower too often. once a day is apparently more than we really need to. McCord's a 2 shower a day kind of guy, I'll rock 3 showers a week (Cause I'm Gross). The Rock Doc, Dr. Spac straightens us out in this week's interview.
We're always very happy to receive insight into the sporting world from those who know it best, so with a warm welcome we often invite sports insider Kate "Beer"ness into the studio to give us the breakdown on the most pressing sports topics. On today's take, she breaks down the Stanley Cup winning Pittsburgh penguins' decisive game 6 victory.
There's another video that the internet can't get enough of. Jerry Seinfeld is on a red carpet doing an interview when he's interrupted by pop star, Kesha. She tried to give him a hug 3 times and he denies her each and every time. It's a very Seinfeld moment. Well, the fin folks over at the website "Reddit" have come to gether to create a script that would be ripped ripped out of the hit sitcom from the 90's. Here's our re-creation of that script. We had help from our friends at Virgin Radio.
3.6 Million hockey fans have voted and the results are in. The fans have named the '84-'85 Edmonton Oilers the best team in NHL history. Whenever a story such as this comes up, we always like to go back in time with Wayne N' Mess.
Yuke and I were revisiting some old ads from the 80's/90's yesterday. You know the ones. The ones that were blatantly aimed at children. This was before the government stepped in and said you couldn't say things like "Go into your mom's purse so that you too can collect them all!!!". Anyway, this ad really brought back some memories of when sugar was considered a vitamin.
So, this bit is really stupid. If you're a longtime listener of the show, you will most likely recall our longstanding series called "Hall 'N' Ebs". For many a season Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle lived in the same condo. In our fictional realm, the two teammates slept in side-by-side Bert and Ernie style beds. When Hallsy left the team, the Oilers' newly appointed mascot, Hunter the Lynx, moved in with Ebs. Zany cat related consequences ensued. Many listeners will comment upon hearing this bit that Hunter the Lynx sounds erily similar to 80's comedian "Bobcat Goldthwait". That, uh... that's intended. Lynx...Bobcat... ge... get it? Here's a window into the living arrangement of Hunter N' Ebs. In this episode, Leon comes over with a bag full of free hats from his hat trick on Sunday night.
